COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Simtra Triple IPA delivers a punch in the face with its very danky hop aroma derived from Simcoe and Citra hops. You wanted more hops you got them.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014 Rerate: Dark copper color with small white head and little lacing- thick and oily. Aroma is resinous, some tropical fruits, pinches the nose like a bit of gasoline. Flavor is very bitter, lots of earthy vegetable, and syrupy candy malt finish. Big hop bomb. Full body, big alcohol presence- pretty intense. Very different from my first experience 6 months ago, and still good, but not what I remember and not what I expected.

11/16/2012: (10)(3)(8)(4)( Amber color with very small diminishing white head. Oily on the glass with no lacing. Aroma is Fantastic- huge huge fruity & floral hops! Amazing fruity hop flavor with an intense grapefruity bitter finish. Best $9 bomber I’ve probably ever had- puts Hoppin Frog’s $14 Hop Dam to shame...

solidfunk (4687) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 27, 2015
A booze bomb trying to disguise itself with hops. Lots of citrus. Golden pour without much head or lacing. High booze in aftertaste. A little overrated due to imbalance. Tap at blind tiger.

Ganska mild doft men tydlig sådan av tall barr. Smaken fruktig , druvor , torr åh tydligt tall barr. Fin öl som säkert gjort sig bättre i riktiga IPA glas. Hotell rummet hade bara vanliga jävla glas. Hmmm

Iznogud (1199) - CROATIA - FEB 15, 2015
On tap at the Ginger Man, New York. Pours orange to amber with lasting medium white head. Lots of hops, fruit and pine in aroma. Sweet flavor, pine, bit spicy, fruit. Lasting fruit bitter finish. Alcohol is bit warming, but well hidden. Really great one.

77ships (4551) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2015
Thanks to Dennoman. Bomber sampled @ RBBWG IV. Golden, almost clear. Nose is sweet onion hops, oily hops, lightly funky hop juice. Taste is onion & garlic hops, hay, light barnyard hops, almost pure hop oil. Oily hop juice body. Not really to my style but interesting & fun. I can really see hop-heads going crazy over this.

pineypower (2610) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle from BA gathering hosted by Dave. Pours out a nice amber color with a small head. Aroma is of juicy citrus hops, pine, light acidic/bitter hops, mild alcohol and some sweet bread crust. Taste is complex, ABV is slightly more apparent on the taste, pine, citrus, juicy tropical fruit, resin, evergreen, mild grass, some grains and some hot alcohol in there, but it doesn’t take away. Nice Beer!
